Puget Sound Ferry Outing

Lori loves riding a ferry so we took on the three ferry challage on the Puget Sound. We got an early start to be able get three ferry rides in one trip. We started in Bremerton Washington to take the state ferry over to Seattle. This was our longest ferry ride at an hour long. We were able to get out of the car and expore the ship and see the sights. When we got to Seattle we did a quick drive around the waterfront and see if it would be safe to come back to another day and explore. We headed to our next ferry that departed from Fauntlroy. Lori knew a long scenic route through West Seattle. I had never been in this area before and found it charming. Our next ferry was a 17 minute trip to Vashon Island. We had enough time to get out of the car, get some pop corn, find a seat on the main deck, have a few bites before it was time to get back to the car to disembark.

On Vashon Island we did a walk around downtown that was about four blocks long. We grab some burgers and frys at Perry’s for lunch. Lori throught it was a proper greasy spoon. They Perry’s has no seating so we went back to the car to eat. In short while we had a homeless person yelling at the car window wanting us to give him something. Lori quickly drove away. Even in what had been the idealic island retreat they now have a homeless problem.

We quickly drove to the southern end of the island to wait in line to catch our last ferry of the day from Vashon Island to Point Disappointment in Tacoma. We got packed in so tight on the ferry we could not even open the car doors. This was a short ten minute ride before we disembarked and head for home.
